Bartolomeus' thoughts and feelings from our visit at the rifugio L’Aroula in Champoluc:

Thanks Matt for submitting this thorough and great review of your stay in Champoluc!

The below is caveated by saying Dayna and I were after a quiet ski holiday (so no need for bars / apres etc) and we're both very good skiers (have skied most major resorts both in Europe and US / Canada) and a fair few smaller resorts too. We love our skiing. Overall I'd give Chompoluc 4 stars out of five. Resorts that get five stars are the likes of: Whistler, Val D'Isere, Ischgl, Jackson Hole, Verbier, Zermatt etc. So 4 is pretty damn good!

    Please, write to us and ask us your questions, and we will get back to you.
